My dear cousin,
You were so much a part of my life, and I will never forget you. I can remember as far back as when I was about 4 yrs old, being brought to your home by my dad, and your uncle Bill, growing up with your kids. You were always so sweet to me. It hurt my heart to see you slipping away from us. The light went out in your eyes, and that horrible disease took you from us! David, Cindy, and Cathy....may God give all of you comfort at this time. Keep your mother close in your heart, and she will always be close to you. If at any time you need me, you know where I am. God bless all of you!
